Yesterday, Andrew Gelman placed this on his blog:

"I'd love if someone else were to write my article, tentatively titled
"Better than a boxplot," with the following abstract: "We demonstrate
graphical options that dominate the boxplot. We hope that, once these
alternatives are understood, boxplots are never used again." But I
have a horrible feeling I'm going to have to write this article
itself."

One response was this:

Great, indeed. Perhaps Nick Cox, the great Stata GraphMaker, or
someone else could make a Stata program to do this?
